Some days I feel on target as a new first grade teacher.
Some days I struggle and feel like I'm not accomplishing what I should.
Through it all, I get small affirmations - comments from friends, a child making a connection, a small note from a child, an unexpected hug.
The other day, I was gathering stories. I had told them to write a story about themselves. I found this.
Each day I know I'm just where I need to be.
